An extraordinary catalogue of the artwork of poster artist, photomonteur, muralist and writer Renau (b. Spain, 1907, lived and worked in Mexico, d. Germany, 1982), a pioneer of modern art in the Valencia of the Second Republic and of the photomontage technique as political propaganda instrument during the WW II.
